Someone should like or love you for who you are, so try not to change yourself just to attract someone because then you are not being yourself. It can be very hard when someone you like doesn’t like you back. When you realize this, it’s good to try and focus on something else. If you like someone, try getting to know them – ask them about their background, interests and personality. If you find common interests with each other, a friendship may form and then maybe romantic feelings could develop. But it is important to know that romantic feelings aren’t things you can force as you can’t control what other people are feeling.
